Courtesy of a new Amazon Japan listing for the next issue of the Transformers Generations Volume 1, we have our look at the exclusive figure being offered. This year it is repaint of the Transformers Classics Astrotrain mold as Trainbot Shouki. Additional pictures from Hero-x show the figure in full and in all three modes. Also revealed is Shouki’s Targetmaster partner, Daniel, which is a reuse of the Powercore Combiner minicon Groundspike. In space shuttle mode, Shouki reveals a Decepticon symbol, which along with Daniel’s color scheme, acts a secondary homage to Micromaster Skystalker. This figure will be available as a bonus only if you order the new Generations book. No word yet on when it will be made available to order.
For now, enjoy this really cool and unexpected character choice and discuss on the 2005 Boards!
